They call them the killer couple. Accused of killing their daughter, the Barbers have been on the run from public opinion for two years.
But the Barbers are fighting back. And if their high profile campaign to clear their name and get their baby back has made them rich that was never their intention.
Meanwhile a failed prosecution hasn't dampened the media's hunger for revelations. Their investigators are on the job, moving towards an exposure that will spotlight the Barbers as the killers they are. And now a dangerous vigilante has joined the fray: if the system can't bring justice he'll mete out his own.
P.I. Eddie Flynn doesn't read the tabloids. Shuns limelight. Trusts only in facts. But can't resist challenges. When the Barbers come to him for help he pushes judgement aside and signs up. His mission: keep them safe and find their child.
Sounds like nice, solid detective work. Until Flynn realizes that his clients are hiding something.

"Brilliant p!ot, expertly narrated"
Well, I never saw THAT ending coming! Luckily I can replay it all and work out what clues I missed. Hurrah! The gift that keeps on giving.
"This is how it's done! Serialise it --- NOW!"
Yes. A) Because it's a joy from start-to-finish, as it's so well written and narrated. B) Just to see what if anything I missed.
It's predecessor for obvious reasons.
The 1st in the Trilogy "Behind Closed Doors". He's such a good match vocally to my mind's-eye's vision of Eddie Flynn. If this gets televised they must cast Mr DeVay :)
Eddie's deadpan humour makes me laugh and the very thought of losing a child &/or children, never mind the trauma in the denouement made me cry.
Encore! When's "Cold Call" coming-out?
"If less is more, how much more would more be!?!"
I enjoyed this even more than the 1st Eddie Flynn book! So, to-date, this is my favourite.
The first one "Behind Closed Doors", where we meet many of the characters in this tale.
"Behind Closed Doors" & "The Surgeon". Professional, clear, good performances laden with gravitas and emphasis. Very easy-on-the-ears.
The most moving moment comes near the end; but, to describe it would truly be a spoiler... Uhmmm, 2 women, 1 man, a knife and a witness - is all I'll say here.
There's a 3rd Eddie Flynn book in print... So here's to the AudioBook. :D
